“The Spirit of God moves within us to lead us, and he does so with two tools: the verse and the voice. “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17 NIV). The primary communication tool of the Holy Spirit is the Bible. He speaks to us through Scripture. His will is found in his Word. Scripture has an answer for any issue you face. The Bible is not only inspirational but also extremely practical. Go first to the verse.
Go next to the voice. The voice might be your inner sense; the “knowing” that results from Scripture interacting with the Spirit. The voice might be wise counsel, a dream, or a vision. The Spirit still speaks. Ask him to guide you. Seek his will. And then listen. Wait for a response.”
“People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Jesus
